Honestly you cant adjust it. There is nothing you can do to it to make it adjustable either.

What I feel is the actual problem is maybe your belt is slipping on the brush roller and not making it easy to push anymore. a belt should be changed once per year, or if you are a pet lover, 2 times a year.

let me know how this works for you.
Good luck.

Suction is great. However, it is very hard to push on carpet. Can this be adjusted?


Hi, this is Jim with Crucial Vacuum,

I'm unsure as to the make and model of your vacuum, but many different vacuums have height adjustments, and various carpet modes to make it easier when vacuuming. These adjustment options should be clearly labeled somewhere on your vacuum.

For instance, if you have the adjusted height set to low the brushroll will experience more resistance from the carpet and be harder to push. You can find these settings and their full functionality in your vacuums manual.

Self adjusting head plate not adjusting to hard floor


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty pushing your DC41 on hard flooring. However I'm confident I can help you resolve this - if you can email me directly at help@dyson.co.uk, I'll be in touch as soon as possible to take some further details. If you have the facility to attach a clear photo of the underside of your vacuum's cleaner head to your email, that would also be very useful to me.

I'll look forward to hearing from you.

There is too much suction even with the hand tools on Hoover wind tunnel. Can i adjust suction somehow?


Hi, it's Jeremy from Crucial Vacuum.

If there is too much suction, adjust the nozzle control knob to a higher setting. The knob is located on the front of the vacuum at the bottom. For optimal cleaning efficiency a low setting should be used for most types of carpet and for hardwood floors, tile, and deep carpets use a higher setting.

It's hard to push because it's literally sucking itself to the floor. Adjust the height control to raise the level and allow more air to get in around the edges, should relieve the vacuum pulling it down. Possibly somthing is wrong with the height adjustment control, allowing machine to sit too low to ground. Hope this helps.

The brushes seem to stick and it is hard to push the dyson 07 along


it sounds like it is sucking it self to the floor. you may need to adjust the height adjustment for the head so it rides a little higher and wont stick to the carpet.

Difficulty vacuuming SmartStrand carpet


Wish I had a solution because we have the same problem with our Smartstrand. We have a Beam Central Vac put in our new townhome and it takes a huge amount of effort to push the power head forward. I have tried a couple of regular vaccum cleaners on it; same problem. The bottom of our power head has a black residue on it. ILike you, I am thinking there is something in this green product that accumulates on the bottom of the power head and prevents the power head from going forward smoothly. There must be other people having the same problem.
Help!

When i am vaccuming it is really hard to push how do u change that setting


Raise your height adjust, and replace your belt. This will fix 99% of the problems with vacuums being hard to push.

Your height should only be as low as it takes to get your brushes to just make contact with your carpet. Peoples' natural inclination is to slam the vacuum as low as possible to deep clean the carpet, but in reality it's restricting your airflow and is cleaning less effectively, as well as making it harder to push.

A properly designed vacuum should be easy to push any time there's a new belt on. If these two solutions don't make it any easier, make sure your wheels are spinning free on the bottom.

Levels/Settings


These height adjustments are designed so that they will not adjust when the handle is in the "back" position. This is so they will stay where they are set and not self-adjust while you are vacuuming. To change the setting, you need to return the handle to the upright position and the adjust the setting and the machine will go to that position when the handle is lowered.
